Unite leader Sharon Graham says strike wave “isn’t going away”

Sunak looks like ‘the captain of the Titanic’

Unite general secretary, Sharon Graham said: “The latest record strike figures announced today are a warning to the government and employers. The wave of industrial action across the UK isn’t going away. In the face of the cost of living crisis workers now have no option but to fight for better wages. 

“Meanwhile the prime minster, Rishi Sunak looks more like the captain of the Titanic day by day - rearranging the deck chairs in his latest Cabinet reshuffle while he is posted missing on resolving strikes in the NHS.”
